Apple, Sauerkraut & Cheddar Quesadillas

Apple, Sauerkraut & Cheddar Quesadillas

This combination may seem unusual—until you try it. The sweet-tartness of the apple, creaminess of the cheese and bite of the sauerkraut work together beautifully in this easy hot sandwich. Serve with oven-roasted potatoes or a green salad.

Serves 2

Prep Time 10 min

Total Time 30 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sauerkraut, rinsed
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 9-to-10-inch (burrito-size) flour tortillas
  • 1 1/3 cups grated reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
  • 1 small Granny Smith or other tart, juicy apple, pee, peeled and very thinly sliced

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Put sauerkraut and water in a medium nonreactive skillet. Gently heat just until the liquid has evaporated but not so much that the sauerkraut begins to stick to the pan. Remove from the heat.

Step 2

Gradually heat a large cast-iron over medium heat. Put one tortilla in the pan and immediately sprinkle 1/3 cup cheese over half of it. Quickly arrange about half the apple slices over the cheese, then top with half the sauerkraut, spreading it evenly. Sprinkle with another 1/3 cup cheese.

Step 3

Fold the tortilla over the filled half and press gently on it with a spatula to seal. Heat the quesadilla until the bottom is golden, about 2 minutes, then carefully flip and lightly brown the other side. Slide the quesadilla onto a cutting board and cut it into halves or quarters. Prepare the second one in the same fashion. Variation: If you like, a little chopped ham tastes wonderful layered in with the other ingredients.
